You will work with McKinsey Digital in our London, Madrid or Lisbon office. McKinsey Digital brings together the best of McKinsey’s digital capabilities to help our clients use digital technology to transform and build new businesses. We are a global team of thousands of developers, designers, agile coaches, and business-technology consultants. Using our trusted build-operate transfer approach, we help large organizations stay ahead of the curve by building and consulting on new digital products, services, and even fully fledged attacker brands. We have combined our advisory services, deep industry knowledge and a proven track record in digital business building. Our work covers the full product life cycle, ranging from data diagnostic to pilot, strategy, solution implementation, and on-going operation. WHAT YOU'LL DO You will help build and sometimes lead new disruptive digital businesses for large organizations, driving lasting innovation. This role provides the opportunity to work at the intersection of strategy consulting, technology and new ways of working. Depending on client needs, you will work with a team to either create a new digital unit for an existing business, or incubate and ultimately scale a new stand-alone business. In both contexts, we start with a strong mandate for innovation and seed teams with Digital Labs practitioners—product owners, user-centric designers, engineers, agile experts and more—and a strong interim leadership team to operate the new entity. Together with your team, you will create a vision and road map. The new digital unit will look, feel and operate like a start-up and be a center of innovation. You will leverage your combination of start-up and corporate experience, applying smart and pragmatic approaches to business building to help to architect the future path of enterprise.
